Dwight Howard doubled up in the loss to the Blazers as he had 24 points and 15 rebounds to go with one assist, one steal, and four blocks.
Howard was dominate for most the game, but what will come as no surprise, he struggled from the free throw line making just 9-of-17 which proved costly in the end as it helped keep the Blazers in the game where they eventually tied it up at the end of regulation and went on to win and steal home court advantage from the Rockets.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Michael Brantley (back) has returned to the Indians' lineup Sunday.
Brantley was out of the lineup as precaution and now seems to be 100 percent healthy. Brantley was one of the most improved players last season, which has greatly increased his fantasy value as some people are drafting him in the second or third round in fantasy drafts. He'll have to have another strong season in order to return value on that high of a draft pick. Analysis: Mark Kaplan
